About me: My research program uses novel technical approaches to understand the structure of complex biological communities in response to ecosystem change and biodiversity loss. I seek to identify ecological processes in complex systems to better predict biological structures across scales. My work integrates ecological traits, advanced remote sensing techniques, and novel modeling tools to identify and predict ecological change. Specifically, I study the response of complex large mammal communities to biological and anthropogenic drivers, with a strong emphasis on tropical forest systems. I am passionate about Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the workplace, and have served as a member of multiple DEI organizations in STEM.
